Rethinking my goals

Tuesday, November 11, 2014      0 comments

I guess the question I'm asking myself is-what is really bothering me about my life right now? What is my real motivation for being on Spark. I'm 53 now, getting older. I don't want to be one of those women who gain a little more and a lit... Read more

Strange things to be thankful for

Saturday, November 08, 2014      3 comments

Work has been so fast-paced that I barely had time to think. All day. I barely had time to go in the break room and eat, but that was ok. I had packed lunch and a healthy snack and water so in spite of the stress I was taking care of myself. Moo... Read more

Feeling the anxiety

Friday, November 07, 2014      0 comments

Had a paper due for school and it took ALL DAY LONG. I'm still fuming. It wasn't that deep or difficult a paper; I was just worked up and anxious and kept looking up one more resource, adding one more thing. School tears me up that way. I wan... Read more

Alright now-let's get serious

I have been taking it pretty easy for the last few days of my startup/return to Spark. Today I want to set some goals and see if I can manage to achieve them. I can't keep pampering myself along doing the easy stuff-I lose my self-respect. I a... Read more

Moving On

Did not work out yesterday; I ended up getting up at 5 a.m. so I could get the Hub up for work (his first day back at work on new job-yay!) and then get animals taken care of and go vote before work. Polls close too early for me to vote after w... Read more

November 2-Day 2

Had a few twinges this morning, nothing major. Walked 2 miles with the Hub; it was a beautiful day with the autumn colors, but cold. Then got on Spark looking for some easy beginner workouts. I did the 7 minute upper body band workout with Co... Read more

An assessment of where I seem to be now...where I don't plan on staying! 1. My moods have not been good. I have had episodes of anxiety where I stay awake at night worrying about school assignments and things at work. I had something close... Read more

Here Goes

I can't believe it has been MARCH since I last made an entry. 12 hour shifts at night will do that to you. My manager has said I can move to day shift in August. So that is one thing to look forward to. Day shift at my job is roughly twice... Read more

be aware of the obstacles; don't let them stop you

Tuesday, March 18, 2014      2 comments

that's my message to myself today. Life is like the Great Balancing Act of 2014. My husband is retired and likes us to do stuff together. I have a job that requires a lot. I work at night so my sleep cycle gets regularly scrambled. I like to... Read more

Still going

I had a day off yesterday and it was good. I did a medicine ball workout, only 1 set because I'm not in shape, but still it was 20 minutes of maneuvers with a medicine ball. Good core exercise. I'm a little sore today but not too sore to enjo... Read more

this is NOT a setback

Friday, February 07, 2014      0 comments

I set my first weeks goals really, really low. Drink 6 cups of water a day and journal on SparkPeople every day. Well, I missed a day yesterday. In the past I would have been really mad at myself and down on myself, but I'm going to focus on w... Read more

Tuesday, February 04, 2014      0 comments

Life happens. I started working nights, husband had knee problems, I started back to school. Job looked uncertain, work schedule kept changing, husband's knee got worse. Had to withdraw from class. Holidays came with family love and family st... Read more

Work and life have been interfering with my schedule of training but today I was determined to get in a good workout. Did 3.25 miles on the treadmill-woohoo!! Last year I ran in the Komen 5K. It was the first time for me. I had been runni... Read more
